With Valentines only a few days away, I’ve got the ultimate gift guide for your loved one, galentines presents or even products to treat yo’self…
Whether your taken or single this Valentines Day, make this an excuse to give yourself or someone you know some love… I guess you don’t need a day to show you love someone, but – why not make it a day to make someone (yourself) smile instead? I’ll probably be doing galentines and spending the evening with my gals – we did this last year with lots of foood.
Anyway speaking of food, if you think of a valentine’s day gift you’d instantly think chocolates right? Well how about some sweet treats instead… Treats.Direct* is an online subscription service where you can send a box full of sweeties to your door for just £4 with postage! They literally have every sweet you can think of from fruit pencils, toffee, black jacks to flying saucers. This is perfect for me, I’d take haribo’s over chocolate any day and who doesn’t love unexpected deliveries?! So if your valentines has a sweet tooth, why not surprise them with a treat or two…
If you want to buy them something personalised but only subtly, the Buckley London Astro Bracelet* is the perfect gift! Hopefully you know their star sign, or if you want one yourself – then that’s easy! I’m cancer which happens to be ruby, so this is perfect for Valentines. For £15 this beautiful bracelet is also reversible with a delicate diamond on the other side. A bracelet like this is always a safe often for a great gift!
Why not add a beautiful time piece to their collection? The Radley London Bayer Rose Gold Watch* spells luxury in my opinion especially with the scotty dog charm. I love how this is sort of like a bangle as well as a watch, plus it’s packaged perfectly in the light green box. It’s not usually my sort of style but I think it’s so pretty in person and that charm really sets it a part for me. If you fancy treating your loved one or yourself, it’s currently on sale for less than £100 at Browns Family Jewellers with free gift wrapping! I also think this would make a great gift for Mother’s Day next month too.
Perfume is always a great present for valentine’s day and if you want something that you know they’ll love, the Viktor & Rolf BonBon Set is perfect! My readers know how much I’ve been loving this lately and this gift set is beyond beautiful. It comes with a 50ml Eau De Parfum, 50ml shower gel and 50ml body lotion for £75. Your best friend or partner will love this for its romantic bottle and fruity notes. Hey, it saves you doing any wrapping too with that luxury bow!
If there’s one makeup product I’d recommend as a gift, its got to be the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette. Those rose and pink flirty shades are perfect for this time of year – ready for spring and summer. Surprise them with this (review) and they’ll be sure to use it that evening for a valentines / date night makeup look. Retails for £39.50.
You can’t go wrong with a gorgeous red lip for Valentines Day can you? Treat yourself to a soft pastel fuchsia with Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution’s Lost Cherry for £24. This is one of my favourite ever lipsticks and I think its one of them colours that would suit anyone, it’s a soft shade so won’t look intense like deep red shades. Just imagine their face if you got them this too in Tilbury’s packaging… Gift goals!
If you don’t know how to tell them you love them, why not spell it with a gorgeous jewellery set from Buckley London? This romantic message: Be Loved set contains a bracelet, ring, necklace and earrings. Wear these as a set for a delicate sophisticated look with the rose gold and cubic zirconia. If you know someone who likes small pieces of jewellery, then this is perfect! Plus for Valentines, its only £22.50 instead of £75!
What are your plans for Valentines? If you are looking into buying a gift for yourself or someone, I hope you found my gift guide helpful! I would have added Lush’s collection in here but I just haven’t had chance to buy their valentines products – should I? I’d love to hear your thoughts. I hope you have a great day whatever you do!
